What to Expect :
On-Site Retail Tenants: Jersey Mike’s and Habit Burger have commenced work on their respective tenant fit-out construction. Both still expect to open during Summer of 2018.
Townhomes: The construction of the next section of townhomes between Rhode Island Avenue and 47th St. on the South side of the Village Green is well underway. They are expected to be completed by Summer. The remaining block of townhouses are anticipated to be completed by the 2nd quarter of 2019. Currently, 62 townhomes have been sold.
Parking Structure Progress: CBG Building Company continues construction on the new multi-level parking structure on parcel E – the building 5 pad site. Precast garage erection for levels 5 and 6 continues, working from East to West, anticipated precast erection completion Mid-May. Mechanical, electrical and plumbing trades are actively working within the garage on all levels.
Temporary Parking Lot: CBG will commence the construction of a temporary parking lot on the Building 6A and 6B sites on Monday, March 26th. That lot is intended to accommodate parking for Gold’s Gym and other retail tenants while the Building 5 parking structure is under construction. It is anticipated that the temporary surface lot will be open by mid-April.
Playground: The replacement snail has arrived but is experiencing immigration problems. We anticipate that the snail will clear customs and immigration within the next day or two and the installation of all snails will commence by the end of this month – perhaps sooner if the weather continues to improve.
CSX Crossing: The construction of the Crossing is complete. PEPCO has encountered tremendous difficulty procuring light fixtures to install along Rivertech Court between the former cul-de-sac and the new roundabout at Lafayette. Additionally, CSX must provide an aerial easement to the County and accept the construction of the Crossing. Finally, the County must approve the as-built documents and conduct a final inspection to verify that all punch list items have been addressed. We are hoping that these remaining matters can be resolved by Mother’s Day and the Crossing can be opened.
CSX Sound Barrier Wall: Construction of the sound wall is complete.
Free Daily Shuttle:
Riverdale Park Station features a FREE daily shuttle from 6:30am to 9:00am and 4:30 pm to 7:00 pm. It runs every 15 minutes between Riverdale Park Station, College Park Metro Station and Prince George’s Plaza Metro Station. The shuttle stop is located near the main entrance to Whole Foods Market. Use it for quick and easy access to work, shopping, recreation and regional transit. Visit. www.rpstransit.com/shuttle for more details.
Route 1 Sidewalk:
Construction of the Route 1 sidewalk connecting the Riverdale Park Station development to Albion Road across the WMATA property is complete. The official grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony took place April 5th, 2018.
Miscellaneous Site Improvements:
Traffic control signs (stop signs, One-way signs, No Parking signs, etc) will be installed along Woodberry, Rhode Island Avenue and 47th Street during the month of April. A trash receptacle has been installed at the intersection of the Hiker-Biker trail and the Woodberry alley. Trash receptacles have been ordered to install at various locations within the Townhouse neighborhood. It is anticipated that those receptacles will be installed by the end of April.
Site Programming Workshops:
Thanks to the members of the townhouse HOA and residents of the surrounding communities who participated in the community workshops for public space programming, which took place on April 16th and 17th. Many great ideas and suggestions were offered and we are looking forward to implementing recommendations from our consultants at Biederman Redevelopment Ventures. For those who missed the workshops, your ideas and suggestions can be sent to ProgrammingRPS@gmail.com.
Hiker Biker Trail:
With the necessary adjustments and safety concerns addressed, the Hiker Biker trail was reopened in Mid-March. The trail will continue to follow the original temporary path set, as seen below. Hikers and Bikers should watch for and follow the detour signs indicated the direction of this trail.
